    Looks like it would be the ultimate hobby welder, but you can bet a 29 pound package that can do everything will have a very professional price tag!

    What's up with the limited distribution areas?

                I not only saw one of the new Multimatic 200's, I got to use it last night at Miller's "Under the Hood" in Atlanta. MIG has a great arc, maybe a little stiffer than my 211.

                This is a great machine, may be pricey, but to be able to MIG, DC TIG, and stick in one small machine guarantees this will be a winner.

                    The link Crabber supplied shows 29Lbs.I thought I wanted a MM211 w MVP, but now I might have to reconsider.

                      I bought a Thermal Arc Fabricater 181i five months ago. It is a little over thirty pounds.

                      The dual voltage on the Multimatic would be nice to have on the TA, but is 220 only. The Therma Arc also says "made in China".

                      I needed a small mig at the time, otherwise I would have waited (had I known!)!

                          Yea, but at least when I call Thermal Arc, they speak my language and it's even the same day!

                          The Miller looks easier to carry around. The TA has a nice MIG arc, does TIG o.k.will run 7018 smooth, but wont run 6010 or 6011.

                            Finally, digital meters!!!

                            I have had a complaint for a very long time with the passport being such a great machine but we are forced to compare settings on the stupid 1-10 scale for voltage and wire feed speed... I hope they roll out the digital displays on all machines. Using a screwdriver scratch or sharpie marker mark on the dials is so last century... I don't see why Miller couldn't just buy a batch of old iPod touch/iPhone 3 screens to wire in as displays. It would likely be very affordable. You wouldn't need the modern "retina displays" for a welder. We wouldn't mind paying a bit extra to be in the 21st century...

                              i like the ipod idea. good use of older technology.

                              Just unboxed my new multimatic 200 and finally got around to finishing my 240v plug in the garage. I could do either voltage, but I had already started and had to finish installing a new panel etc.

                              Anywya, did my first mig weld with the machine and was great! I am very new to welding so don't have any experience to speak of, but i layed some beads and did a quick fabrication that was not pretty but worked like a charm.

                              Will try a first project this week while up at my summer house - the reason i got this was to have it transportable from chicago to michigan. So far working out cause i could put it in the car between two kids and with a cat on top - no problem.

                              i will test it out more and try stick welding too. don't have the tig option yet, but will do that next year. I love that it has the capability.
